14th side. he said, "i am the state," and mr. obama came close to saying in a press conference to saying "i am the change." the title was a suggestion of my editor and publisher. i had entertained another possibility, which was suggested to me by my friend, bill, namely, barack obama, what the hell were we thinking? [laughter] as opposed to some of my conservative colleagues and friends, i don't think we get far by labeling president obama a socialist or by trying to trace his foreign origins or his secret muslim devotions, nor that even that we greatly illuminate things by focusing on him as a kind of third world ideolog as my old friend argues in his movie and in two books about obama. i think it's fairer to begin, fairer, and more useful in the end -- excuse me. to begin by admitting that obama is what he calls himself, namely a progressive or a liberal. the rest of the title is on barack obama and the crisis of liberalism. i don't mean by this the kind of crisis that liberals like, which is the kind of national emergency that invites the expansion of government, but rather cri

first word of the book and change requires 60 votes in the united states senate. obama took office during an economic cataclysm and he decided that in an emergency changing the country was more important than changing the capitol. the central drama of the book is literally the middle central section. silda pushed the change into law in the first month. it wasn't clean and pretty. rahm emanuel is in the middle of it and it wasn't suitable for younger years either. but the whole stimulus debate is a case study in obama to the disillusionment of the left but proved that obama was just like every other politician. more interested in cutting deals and trading james desperate to compromise with republicans who were only interested in surrender. to the fever swamps on the right it revealed obama is a euro socialist radical who is a full - chicago style partisan and a wimp who is deferring to his leftist congressional overlords of the same time. he was pretty much what he said he was. a data oriented left of center technocrat that was above all a pragmatist comfortable with compromise, and
